SoC 2009/QuickTimeVR Playback
|This project is part of Google Summer of Code 2009.
FreePV is a panoramic viewer that was initially developed due to the lack of an implementation of QuickTime and Shockwave for Linux and VLC is a cross platform media player widely used, both work with QuickTime files and the problem arise from that, since both videos and VR contents share the same Mime Type this ends in a conflict for web explorers such as Firefox which should decide which plug-in to load based on the Mime Type of the file. To solve this problem the main goal of this project is to integrate the FreePV library into VLC to enable it to play QuickTime VR contents; the second goal would be to improve FreePV.

- VLC will be able to distinguish between video and vr content.
- VLC will be able to display panoramas.
- VLC should be able to handle the interaction required for panoramas.
I could start getting familiar with the VLC code, since April 3th, because I will have more 2 free weeks and I should have plenty of time to do it, after April 22th I will be with exams and giving projects away, but I will try to keep working in the project.
I will be able to work full time in the project after this day.
Official Start date for Google Summer of Code 2009.
